Gosford for Thursday racing here in the Sydney area where we have eight races on the card here in what looks to be a nice enough days racing. The weather in the lead up has been good. With the rail out 3m the circumference we should be on a good surface come race day.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)

BEST BET: R1 – 6. TANIKO
Next Best Bet: R2 – 1. SONDELON
Best Roughie: R4 – 1. NORTHERN FIRE
No6 TANIKO (BEST BET) has been trialing brilliantly in the leadup to the debut run here, I like what she did when Avdulla asked her to move into the last trial and she should kick off her career with a win.
No4 IVA LILO
VALUE RUNNER: No4 IVA LILO
No1 SONDELON (NEXT BEST BET) has been awesome in the two wins from the two starts, love the placement here as he finds a weaker race than last start and he should dominate them.
No4 WORD GAMES
VALUE RUNNER: No2 DELFUEGO
No3 MILEAGE looks set to peak here third-up and has been good in both runs this time in.
No1 I’M IMOGEN
VALUE RUNNER: No2 DUNATUN
No1 NORTHERN FIRE (BEST ROUGHIE) resumes from almost two years off here and brings solid form (even though its old form) and has trialled well enough.
No7 IKARA MISS
No2 PHOENIX CHARM
No3 KING BILLY
VALUE RUNNER: No1 NORTHERN FIRE
No5 STONE resumes here and finds as weak a race as he has run in and I’m happy to give him another chance.
No1 SUGARLAND EXPRESS
VALUE RUNNER: No1 SUGARLAND EXPRESS
No2 SISKIYOU looks to be suited stepping up to the mile here after three good runs this time in, expect Avdulla to roll forward and dominate.
No1 BATTLE FURY
No4 BEAUTY KANAS
No5 MISSILE ATTACK
VALUE RUNNER: No4 BEAUTY KANAS
No3 RESIN smashed them last start when breaking the maiden, I expect her to go forward and dominate the race.

No2 ONLY TIGER closed off well last start and should run well yet again here.
No1 BON EQUUS
No7 BUGLE CALL
VALUE RUNNER: No5 STAN
